Minwegan & Weiss Antique Bar Chicago

c. 1900 Minwegan & Weiss Co Antique Saloon Bar and Back Bar

here. The front bar is 18 feet of beautiful, partially quartersawn, Red Oak with applied decorative panels.   The back bar has two brass-plated sconces and a brass-plated double arm pendant.  Architectural details include bull’s eye and sunburst medallions, aged brass foot rail, carved acanthus leaves, claw and ball feet, and beveled mirrors.  Just imagine the stories this bar would tell if it could talk! Minwegen & Weiss Manufacturing Company was formed in 1889.  This informative blog from Urban Remains details the company’s history and includes iconic vintage photos from that era. These spectacular pieces from the turn of the nineteenth century were originally designed for commercial use and would make a statement in any restaurant, bar, or hotel.  They would also add a real wow factor to a private residence in a cook’s kitchen, man cave, or party barn. From the impeccable craftsmanship to the beautiful details, this is a piece you have to come see for yourself!  Visit us at Black Dog Salvage in Roanoke, Virginia or find more information online.
